Thumbnail Filmstrip of Hamlet Lacer Signature Skew - 1-3/8" Images
Made by Hamlet Craft Tools of Sheffield England to Alan Lacer's specifications, this skew measures 3/8" thick with a tool length of 6-1/2". The cutting edge is curved to make for a larger sweet spot and to help reduce catches. The edge on the long point side is square to make v-cuts easier while the edge on the short point side is rolled over making smoothing cuts and rolling beads easier.
The Lacer Skews are made of 3/8" thick M2 high speed steel. The 1-3/8" tool comes with a 16" Ash handle.
